Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome to Year 5! We hope everyone had a wonderful summer and had a good chance to relax, ready to come back raring to go! We know we have.
Even though it has only been a few days, we feel all the children have settled in really well to their new classrooms, time tables and lessons.
Because of Enrichment and other whole school opportunities, most of the children already know Mr Garbett and Miss Lilly. We also have Mrs Delayhaye and Mrs Watkins, who will be working with the children in small groups. Also in the Year 5 team, we have Miss Walker, who will be taking some children as an additional English group. We are very lucky to have such a strong and talented team.
This term, we will be looking at The Ancient Greeks and how their lives were different and similar to ours.
If you have any interesting Ancient Greek knowledge, photos or artefacts, please do let your child bring them in to share with the class, as this really makes our topic come alive and gives the children lots of great ideas.
Things to remember:
- Spellings will be given out on Monday and tested on Friday
- Our beautiful new reading records will be checked on Friday. Remember to read 3 or more times a week
- Our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday
- Swimming lessons will start after Christmas and will probably be on a Thursday at 10am. This means we can turn up for school normally and then we will leave after our first lesson of the day. More information will come to you about this in December.
If you have any questions or problems, feel free to come and talk to us before or after school.
Thank you for all of your support, I know we are going to have a great year.
The Year 5 team
